Full description
Designated by Congress as the official WWII museum of the United States, the National WWII Museum is located in downtown New Orleans, where 5 soaring pavilions house historical exhibits, on-site restoration work, a period dinner theater, and restaurants. Purchase your timed tickets in advance to secure your desired entry or movie time. Housed in 5 buildings, the museum tells the story of the American experience in the war that changed the world – why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today. The Louisiana Memorial Pavilion features the “D-Day Invasion of Normandy” exhibit and an exhibit telling the story of the war experienced on the Home Front.  The "Campaigns of Courage" area features the “Road to Tokyo” exhibit, which retraces the grueling trail from Pearl Harbor to Tokyo. It also houses the “Road to Berlin” exhibit, recreating actual battle settings and villages as America campaigned to defeat the Axis powers. A two-hour guided tour of these two exhibits, led by an expert docent, is also available to book as an option. The U.S. Freedom Pavilion features actual WW2 airplanes restored to their wartime glory, including the B-17E Flying Fortress, as well as wartime tanks and trucks. Liberation Pavilion, which opens in 2022, will explore the closing months of the war and immediate postwar years, concluding with an explanation of links to our lives today.  In the Solomon Victory Theatre, you will be able to see, hear and feel the epic story of World War II in the exclusive 4D experience “Beyond All Boundaries”, narrated by Tom Hanks. This movie experience requires the purchase of the option which includes the 4-D film.

Moving, informative, beautifully done. The museum was the highlight of our trip to New Orleans. My granddaughter and I both soaked up each exhibit and experience. I wish I could have stayed longer; the narratives were numerous and I didn’t have time to listen to them all. The movie was more than worth the extra time and expense.

Great museum. Not great with smaller kids because of the reading needed to fully enjoy the exhibits, though both of mine definitely enjoyed I think had my younger one been older she would have gotten more out of it. Overall it was awesome. Definitely worth the admission price. Make sure you have plenty of time, we had 3hrs and it wasn’t quite enough to not feel rushed at the end.

The only thing is the film we watched prior to the tour. If someone has experienced PTSD or "shell shocked," they do not need to watch it. Before you watch it,you are given a disclaimer about it. I haven't ever been to a war zone or been apart of the Military and there certain parts of it that made me jump. It was a fantastic film about the whole overview of WWII. EVERYONE was expectionally nice!!!! The canteen a had good food,too!
